Overview

"Julien Duvivier's classic 1937 film Pepe le Moco gets the treatment it so richly deserves from Criterion. The film is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The French soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a 1963 interview with the director, clips from a television tribute to actor Jean Gabin, excerpts from a British Film Institute study of the film, a featurette on how the film affected popular French culture, a comparison of the film with the American version of the same story (Algiers), the original theatrical trailer, and an essay by film critic Michael Atkinson. This is the kind of release that has made Criterion one of the premiere names in home video."
